Left Bank Gang by Jason
Book Description1920s Paris: is the birthplace of the graphic novel! Set in 1920s Paris, this very original and hilarious graphic novel is a deliciously inventive reimagining of four literary giants (F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound and James Joyce) as not only typical Jason anthropomorphics, but graphic novelists! In Jason's warped world, cartooning is the dominant form of fiction, and not only do these four literary figures work in the comics medium but they get together to discuss pen vs. brush, chat about the latest graphic novels from Dostoevsky ("I can't tell any of his characters apart!") to Faulkner ("Hasn't he heard of white space? His panels are too crowded!") and bemoan their erratic careers. A hilarious sequence where Hemingway is lectured by an overbearing Gertrude Stein, guest appearances by Zelda Fitzgerald and Jean-Paul Sartre plus a few remarkable twists and turns along the way make for one of the funniest and most playful graphic novels of the year.
